Local deaf Nigerian community invited to share thoughts on improving education in Nigeria

The Office of Research Support and International Affairs invites members of the Deaf Nigerian community at Gallaudet and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to a meeting on cultivating Gallaudet’s relationship with Nigeria. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, noon-1:30 p.m., at the LLRH6 Terrace.

Led by President Roberta J. Cordano, Gallaudet has undertaken an initiative to enhance the capacity of what it can do to work with Nigerian universities and other stakeholders in the Nigerian education system in order to benefit Deaf Nigerians.

The meeting seeks input on what steps need to be taken to address the educational needs of Deaf Nigerians. The information gathered at the meeting will be highly useful in developing plans by a Gallaudet delegation that will travel to Nigeria next year.
